Have an Answer?
Hi, There are many roads to travel in the non profit social services field, especially working with youth. Best way to get a feel for which area you want to be in is try volunteering with kids. I have done a reading program through juvenile courts and community schools. I was at polinsky center but check online. Also what education route do you want to travel? Do you have a degree, is it your goal to get an MA Psychology? If you get licensed as a LCSW or MFT lots of opportunities. In your degree programs you will have the chance to intern at a non profit where you can learn and see if it's what you like. Hope this helps. Mark
